February is fully underway, and we’re still flying the flag for new and exciting cinematic experiences, albeit from our homes - still. Throughout the last 11months, I have been so grateful for the window into other worlds that film provides us with, and I am continuing to hold onto this form of nightly escapism with my fingertips. People talk often about how the pandemic has changed or even decimated the Film Industry which is undeniable, but I’m choosing to focus on what a lifeline Film has been to millions of us over the past year and I am determined to do everything I can to continue to support it.
We are happy to say that we are partnering with Modern Films again, and have the below films ready to go. All you need to do is click on the links and search for No6 in the ‘Watch Via Your Local Cinema section’.
John lives with his partner, Eric, and their daughter, Mónica, in California, far from the traditional rural life he left behind years ago. John's father, Willis, a headstrong man from a bygone era, lives alone on the isolated farm where John grew up. Willis is in the early stages of dementia, making running the farm on his own increasingly difficult, so John brings him to stay at his California home so that he and his sister Sarah might help him find a place near them to relocate to. Unfortunately, their best intentions ultimately run up against Willis’s adamant refusal to change his way of life in the slightest.

In celebration of the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival which took place in 2020, we are excited to get our adrenaline pumping for this ‘Best of’ compilation film. The feature length film is compiled of 8 films shown at the festival last year – I will likely need a sit down and a cup of tea after!
